you can tell me what you get when you apply distributive property to 3(x-y)?

3xy? or 3(y-x) p
Idk how to do the distributive property

3(x-y) is the same as 3x-3y

\[3x+4y+3(x-y)-4x \\ 3x+4y+3x-3y-4x\]

now using that addition is commutative to place like terms together

commutative property is just changing the order

so for the first slot it's written like 3x+4y+3x-3y-4y = Distributive property??

almost

you want to leave that last term as it was
we didn't do anything to it

Umm, how do you write exactly?
I'm a little lost on what your saying...sorry

should be 3x+4y+3x-3y-4x by use of the distributive property

-4x doesn't just turn into -4y

Oh! I got it! Okay give me a sec to write it, and then we can move to the next slot?

I got it! so next one?

Wait, what do you want me to do?

change the order so like terms are together

like terms are terms with the same variable part

put all your x terms together and put all your y terms together

10x +7y
Like that?

like if I had a+a+b+a+b-4a
reorder so that like terms are together
a+a+a-4a+b+b

3x+3x+4x=10x
4y+3y=7

^^ That?

Oh... I was supposed to add all the X's in order, and all the y's after that?

anyways I be back
I have thing

Wait you're leaving?! I thought you'd help me finish the problem??

Math tease.

Sorry. I had something come up.
Anyways I hoped the example helped.
